|Death: ||Nov. 2, 1900|
Birth year is an estimate based on the marker inscription. If accurate, his date of birth could range from Nov. 3, 1843 to Nov. 2, 1844. However, the 1880 (Precinct 1, Lavaca County, Texas; ED 77; Page: 362B) and 1900 (Justice Precinct 1, Lavaca County, Texas; ED 83; Page: 2A) censuses give Ben's approximate years of birth as 1856 and May 1855, respectively.
According to information provided by a Find-A-Grave user, Ben married Lucinda Whitmore on 3 Nov. 1876 in Lavaca County, Texas. Further, Ben was a private in Co. K of Baylor's Regiment, Texas Cavalry, (also known as the Second Regiment of the Arizona Brigade) during the Civil War.
In the 1880 census, Ben and Lucinda are shown as parents of two daughters, Lucy (b. abt 1877) and Murtie (b. abt 1879). In 1900, Ben and Lucinda were enumerated with daughter Clina (b. abt 1894) and Ben's mother, Anna, age 75 (b. abt 1825).
